It’s André 3000 like you’ve never seen him before. The OutKast rapper is getting animated with virtual band Gorillaz for a new collaboration.
As part of footwear brand Converse’s “Three Artists. One Song” initiative, Gorillaz have recorded a new song entitled “DoYaThing” featuring 3000 and former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy. The free track will be available for download on Converse’s website on February 23.
Past Converse collaborations include “I’m a Goner” with Soulja Boy, Andrew W.K., and Matt & Kim, and 2008’s “My Drive Thru” with Santigold, Pharrell, and Julian Casablancas.
André 3000 can also be seen in television spots for Gillette’s Fusion ProGlide Styler campaign with actors Adrien Brody and Gael García Bernal.
